PE in Primary A

The last 2 weeks have been full of energetic fun between the Hydrotherapy pool and our Rebound Therapy sessions on the trampoline.  Our new P1s have been showing us their delight and fully participating in our activities.  We have worked hard to ensure our fabulous newbies have had the best start with varied experiences.  Our photos show exactly how they responded.  Enjoy 🙂

Primary A’s 50 Things To Do…

Today Primary A embarked on one of our 50 Things To Do challenges…we had a Pooh Stick Race!  We found sticks, dropped them into the water, and then rushed to the other side of the bridge to see if our stick made it through!

AF throwing her stick into the water!

Success! AF’s Pooh Stick made it all the way under the bridge!

LC listening to the water rushing.

Another victory! LC’s stick made it through the water!

Well! What a wonderful first week in Primary A! We have been really busy getting to know everyone! Firm favourites so far are magic carpet, pool, rebound and sensory exploration 🖤 Here’s a sneak peak at our sensory play. Roll on week two!


Garden Fayre certainly got us in the mood to make our class planter pretty for summer!  We loved the sights, smells and textures of our new plants.  We even found some new friends in the form of creepy crawlies.  We got a bit messy too…!

ME picked the orange flower!

Gardening makes Primary A happy!

ME delighted with his choice!
